Here I’m offering a choice of one of 16 original color plates from the 1908 1st edition Dorothy and The Wizard in Oz! These are full color plates with captions used in the Reilly & Britton 1st and 2nd printings, according to the Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum. The 5 plates shown include those opposite pages below and PLEASE read carefully–some are sold!
